Jesse Crain traded to the Tampa Bay Rays

The one White Sox who is physically restrained from ruining his trade value has been traded.

For what exactly he’s been dealt for sounds like a conditional situation at the moment, where the number of appearances he can make after recovering will determine the White Sox return. 

And this…

Considering the normal returns when handing relievers three-year contracts, Crain lived a heroic existence. He never lost his role due to sustained incompetence, he never missed an entire season due to injury, and actually got more valuable as his contract wore on. This does not happen all the time.

You said it, Cee.
